Bohermeen jockey Johnny Murtagh will return to action on the track at Dundalk tomorrow night after a spell on the sidelines.

At the moment he has has two confirmed rides on the seven race card - Dansili Dual in the 8.20 - last ran over five furlongs at Windsor in October - and the versatile Denny Crane in the final race for Dunshaughlin-based handler Eddie Lynam, but the Kilmessan-trained Gretzky could be the one to follow there?

Murtagh sustained a broken collarbone at the beginning of January (it was on New Year's Eve) while on a family skiing holiday in Austria and will be pleased to be back in action so quickly with the turf season set to start next month.
